Kanye West took over the PA system of a Delta Airlines flight from Minneapolis to New York Friday? — and rapped lyrics from two of his songs. A passenger told HollywoodLife.com that West, who was seated in first class, suddenly was heard on the plane's loudspeaker approximately 30 minutes into the flight, rapping clean versions of "The Good Life" and "Gold Digger." "I had to pass through first class to get my seat in economy, and I saw Kanye sitting there with a little drink in his hand," the passenger said. "I wouldn't have even thought it was him, but he was sitting with a very PR-looking lady. He was like, 'Yo, this your n—-a, Kanye.' Then he couldn't decide if he wanted to do 'The Good Life' or 'Gold Digger,' so he was like, 'I'll just do a little bit of both.' It was awesome ... but I still have no idea how he got into the cockpit."
The passenger also said that rather than leaving the plane first, like many first-class passengers, "He filed out in line with everyone else, and I thought that was pretty cool. Especially for Kanye."
By Sunday, Kanye was in Spain at the MTV Europe Awards, making a surprise appearance with 30 Seconds to Mars. Kanye West Surprises Delta Airline Passengers With In-Flight Concert [Hollywood Life]
